Pick up the pieces that I've left behind
I woke up today feeling older
And never so much better
I know I talk in circles.
I never wanted to avoid your conversation.

You see yourself in my eyes.
Another day has passed us by.
The more time I spend,
The less I see of you.

I'll never take it back
Your voice is like an angel
Guiding over every move I make
I'll never want it back
The direction that you've gave me.
Nothing can replace what I've gained.

Time grabs me by the shoulders.
No one know how it feels to move over.
I know I'm still far from you
And it feels like I'm still far from home.

My name is a disappointment.
I only disappoint myself.
If only I could hold this moment
Kept from everyone else.

    This song is about a guy who just had a girl leave him, and he is upset about it and of course he wants her back.

    Hmmm... pretty much all of NFG's songs are about that. Even their Christmas song was about a frickin girl.

    This song is amazing. Definitely my favorite NFG song and its up there on my favorite songs of all time. I'm pretty sure its

    "My name isn't disappointment"

    Even though it sounds more like what is put above, I think that thats what they put in the insert.

    This song is fabulous. It shows how great New Found Glory is... and the lyrics are really so emotional, even though it has that up beat punk beat to it, it still can make you cry. NFG rocks!

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
